He is back. He looks fierce with his dark goatee. It reflects the place where George Lopez is now at this point of his career. A man in the twilight of his career determined to grasp at anything to remain relevant.
George accomplishes this in “Lopez,” which premieres tonight on TV Land at 10pm E.S.T. He plays a character we are quite familiar with, himself. The formula is similiar to his previous successful effort but darker. He has arrived in 2016 seamlessly.
After leading television series and comedy specials, as well as a stint as a late-night host, Lopez does here what he has always done on screen and in life. He plays to the stereotypes Latinos know all too well and then reverses the perception.
If nothing else, its good to see George on television once more. Even if its on a station that re-runs classic sitcoms while producing original comedy series. George, enter stage left. Let them laugh at you, because in reality, we know that they end up laughing with you. That makes George Lopez a classic.
